25 February 2021

Responding to recent GP consultation data from NHS Digital, Professor Martin Marshall, Chair of the Royal College of GPs, said: "GPs and our teams are currently working incredibly hard, with a central role in the Covid vaccination programme – delivering around 75% of vaccine doses in England – as well as continuing the expanded flu vaccination programme and delivering the care our patients rely on. Given the workload and workforce pressures general practice is facing, it’s really good to see that when patients need care, they are being seen in such a timely manner.

Martin Marshall addresses RCGP Fresh Approach online conference

11 February 2021

Something’s happening in general practice that doesn’t happen often; we’re being openly and warmly praised for our efforts. Of course most of our patients are grateful for what we do but to be heaped with praise by the media and by so many politicians over our vaccination effort is, I have to say, slightly unnerving. This is particularly so after last summer’s open season when we were criticised for changing our model of delivering care in order to keep our patients safe.

Lancet study shows health inequalities goes beyond healthcare

28 January 2021

Professor Martin Marshall, Chair of the Royal College of GPs, said: “Today’s research in The Lancet is concerning. The Covid-19 pandemic has shone a light on the health inequalities faced by members of Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities in society, and this study adds to that evidence base. It shows that issues need to be addressed across the NHS.
